Other Notable Sites / Blogs
I have a lot of fun compiling these lists because it allows me to discover a bunch of new blogs, most of them with excellent content. It is also interesting to see how the different blogs on a specific niche perform under the parameters. Once again we based the analysis on Google’s Pagerank, Alexa rank, Bloglines subscribers and Technorati authority. The details about the algorithm can be found below the table.
Blogs considered: the list considers only blogs that have a high percentage of web design related content.
Google Pagerank (0 to 10): the actual Pagerank was used on the algorithm.
Alexa Rank (0 to 10): Ranges were determined based on the Alexa Rank (i.e., 150k and up, 150k-100k, 100k-75k, 75k-50k) and each range was assigned a number (1 to 10).
Bloglines Subscribers (0 to 10): Subscriber ranges were determined (i.e., 1-50, 50-100, 100-150, 150-200) and each range was assigned a number (1 to 10).
Technorati Authority (0 to 10): Ranges were determined based on Technorati’s Authority rank (i.e., 1-100, 100-200, 200-400,400-600) and each range was assigned a number (1 to 10).

Good list of the top web design blogs. Agree with PelFusion though that SmashingMagazine should be the top spot now. There are definitely a lot of new web design blogs that have come out since that are good reads. One site that I’ve found that lists a bunch of these and their most recent posts is http://uitop.com.
